What’s This?

Several years ago, Twitter introduced embedded Tweets so content created on Twitter could appear in articles or websites. Twitter accomplished this by combining HTML preview content with Twitter-hosted JavaScript. Users may copy-and-paste Embedded Tweet markup generated on a Tweet detail page.

Anyone can embed Tweets simply by copying and pasting one line of code into their website. Embedded Tweets automatically open to show images, conversations and videos, and may include photos or link previews to highlight additional content.

From a Tweet embedded in a web page, you can follow users with a single click and reply, retweet or favorite the Tweet right from the page. You can also click on the author’s @!username to see their Twitter profile page, or click the date in the lower left corner of the Tweet to see Replies, Retweets and Favorites on the Details page.

Updated Embedded Tweets With Redesign

Last month, Twitter redesigned their embedded Tweets which offers full-width photo and video for better visual integration with surrounding content. Twitter reduced the weight and rendering time, so pages with embedded Tweets can load faster. On mobile, Twitter selects the best-sized photos and videos for higher-quality photos and icons in the embedded Tweet display area.

How to embed a Tweet on your website or blog

1) Click the ••• More icon located within the Tweet.

2) From the menu that pops up, select Embed Tweet.

3) From the pop-up box that appears, copy and paste the code provided into your blog or website.

The Tweet embed code can be used to display all kinds of Tweets, including Tweets with photos and videos, as well as Tweets that are part of a conversation (@replies).

Twitter Offers Official Plugin for WordPress

In a related development, Twitter recently released an official plugin for WordPress that will allow sites to effortlessly embed Twitter content. This new Twitter plugin might save some the time it takes to search through the endless unofficial third-party substitutes. Visit WordPress.org to download and install the new plugin, which comes with a number of features and add-ons.

This new plugin for WordPress makes it easy to include an embedded Tweet on your website that matches your site design. Choose a widget theme, link color and border color from your WordPress administrative dashboard to visually integrate Tweets into your webpages and articles. Also included is support for video embeds to highlight Twitter video content.
